Zines of the Modern Age

Jonno Revanche’s article on zines provides an interesting insight into them, one that I find particularly geared towards our society today. Revanche discusses the secluded nature of the zines, and I think that’s good in today’s society considering the internet and its plethora of shared content. You can’t go on social media without missing personal pictures and videos of your friends, family, and random people you may follow. Something else that comes with the internet is scamming and the different types of advertisements. With zines, the risk of getting scammed is eliminated, and with it comes an added sense of privacy and security.
